Xylimelts for dry mouth

I was actually excited to know that I left my water bottle on 2 separate occasions last week. There was a time that I never even sat it down let alone walked off and left it. Saliva improving :-) Matt, I'm going to give you the pat on the back for that one. I went on-line and ordered the sample of Xylimelts. I used one and it was like it jump started the salivation. That was at least 2 weeks ago and I think I've only used 2 or 3 of the samples.
Maybe it was just my time to blossom but I really think the Xylimelts played a part. Posting as they might give someone else a bit of relief.

    Oooo....this makes me think I should try them again....
    I still have some, but they started stinging so bad, back in July, I just gave them up....well, now I'm ALL thru with treatment....I'm not going to get any mouth sores again because I'm on the total healing journey this time, rather than getting swatted out the sky like a fly every month...

    Very encouraging!!

    thanks for the pat
    Hi hwt,

    They are not a cure all and they don’t work for everyone, but they have helped me. I use them throughout the day and definitely at bed time. Using at bedtime, I sleep through the night (other then having to pee once because I drink water all day long). They are funky, I have found them on my pillow and almost choked on one once. Usually, they stick right where I put them and then slowly disappear.

    I just ran down to Staples and forgot my water bottle (rookie mistake), I had some Xylimelts in car so I popped two and it was enough for a safe round trip.

    Best,

    Matt

    I buy 3 – packets of 80 each at a time. $15 or $16 a pack

    Good sign
    Just 6 months ago I think I had a water bottle strapped to each leg and one in each hand for security whenever I left the house. Glad we are slowly moving past some of these things, that you are getting your taste back little by little and that Phrannie is now on the backside of tx and life without mouth sores.

    Matt got me hooked too
    Matt,
    I ordered some after you told me about it and they have helped me especially at night. In fact, one night I drooled! I know only those on this site can appreciate that! I was afraid to try the mint because I thought they might hurt my mouth. I think next time I order I may try it mint tho.....what kind do you like best? Also, where do you order yours?

    amazon
    amazon has them. I've tried both, mint and non-mint.
    last time I checked, the non-mints at amazon were shipped from a third-party, and they charged for shipping--like $7 shipping for a box of 60.
    the mint were shipped from amazon, with free shipping on orders over $25... for me, the mint is tolerable and I'm too much of a skinflint to pay for shipping.
    so I just throw in a "Longmire" paperback and get the free shipping. ;-)

    look for a deal, no shipping
    Billie/blackswampboy,

    Amazon is where I get them; we always look for free shipping (usually $25 min). Hence, 3-packs of 80 each at a time.

    The flavor doesn’t bother me

    Best,

    Matt
